The former Ukip leader said the row had been "blown out of proportion" and suggested the United States president did not have "an earthly clue" about the identity of the extremist Britain First group when he shared the clips last week. I have said that from day one.

It is understood the 53-year-old former Ukip leader will be entitled to an annual pension of £73,000 when he reaches the age of 63.

Later in the same programme, Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg, when asked if he thought the president had crossed an "important boundary", said: 'Though I am on Twitter, I think it is a fundamentally trivial medium and it is not worth spending so much time fussing'.

But today Nigel Farage, who has spent much time in the USA courting the President, slammed other United Kingdom politicians' reactions as "out of all proportion". "Why should my family and others suffer even more?"

Notwithstanding, Farage said he didn't expect the cash could ever be paid.

"And I think it's viewed by the public as being ridiculous".

But the MEP was readily criticised by fellow politicians and others on social media.

Those on Twitter were equally unforgiving. "Don't object to taking it but Farage is a Brexit elite professional politician riding 1st class on a gravy train he denounces", tweeted Daily Mirror associate editor Kevin Maguire.

Be that as it may, previous MEP for the East Midlands, Roger Helmer, rushed to safeguard Farage.

Nigel Farage has launched a staunch defence of Donald Trump's online activity, claiming the president had no "earthly clue" who Britian First were when he retweeted them.

It was gathered genuinely when the United Kingdom was an European Union part state on favorable terms, and a noteworthy net supporter.
